All Scripture Is Inspired By God

II Timothy 3: 16-17

16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

scripture – (graphe – pronounced graf-ay)

a document that is holy

inspiration of God – (theopneustos – pronounced theh-op-nyoo-stos)

divinely breathed in

doctrine – (didaskalia pronounced did-as-kal-ee-ah)

instruction, learning, teaching

reproof – (elegmos pronounced el-eng-khos)

a proof, proving, test

correction – (epanorthosis – pronounced ep-an-or-tho-sis)

a restoration to an upright or right state

instruction (paideia pronounced pahee-di-ah)

tutorage, that is education or training; by implication disciplinary correction, chasten, nurture

It suggests the Christian discipline that regulates character.

17. That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

perfect – (artios pronounced ar-tee-os)

fresh, complete, fitted (from artos, meaning a limb or joint)

throughly furnished – (exartizo pronounced ex-ar-tid-zo)

to finish out (time); figuratively, to quip fully (a teacher), accomplish, to fit out, to prepare perfectly, to complete for a special purpose – Throughly is usually part of the translation of a verb, e.g. cleanse, furnish, purge

good – (kalos pronounced ag-ath-os)

good in any sense, benefit, take thought for things honorable, be zealous, kindness in doing toward others

works – (ergon pronounced er-gon)

toil (as an effort or occupation); by implication an act; deed, doing, labor, work

Every part of the Bible is inspired by God and is perfect in every way. You can find everything you need to live a victorious Christian life. God wants to mold you into the person He desires, and He has given you a complete manual to show you the way.
